NCAA wants to talk with Bryce Brown

The more you hear about the NCAA’s ongoing investigation into Tennessee’s recruiting practices under former coach Lane Kiffin, the clearer it is that this probe is much broader than a couple of recruiting hostesses making a trip last September to see a high school football game in Duncan, S.C.

That trip by members of the now-defunct Orange Pride group may have been one of the things that prompted the NCAA to start turning over rocks, but it’s mushroomed into something much bigger now. For Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton to admit that a letter of inquiry is probably coming, that’s telling. The unnerving thing for Hamilton and the rest of the university is that there’s no way to know at this point what the NCAA has or what all has turned up in its probe.
